Rosiglitazone Prior Authorization Safety Policy

In the second study, Prime collaborated with Florida Blue to evaluate drug use among 1.4 million commercially insured members who were exposed to a rosiglitazone PA program beginning January 1, 2009. These members were compared with a group of approximately 2 million commercially insured members who did not have this safety PA intervention.

The study found that the rosiglitazone PA was successful in significantly reducing concurrent use of nitrates and insulin among health plan members with type 2 diabetes.

"Previous studies have found that prior authorization programs reduce drug utilization and costs, but it has been unclear whether patients were impacted positively or negatively," said Gleason. "Our study is unique in that the findings support the use of a PA to promote safe prescribing as evidenced by the potential cardiovascular event risk avoidance for patients."

The authors were: Catherine I. Starner , PharmD, BCPS,CGP; Beckie Fenrick , PharmD (formerly with Florida Blue ); Peter Wickersham , MS, MBA; and Patrick P. Gleason , PharmD, BCPS
